Doctors also have a sense of humour !

Every once in a while I come across something which restores my faith in the medical profession. International Family Planning Perspectives is a medical journal, and typical article titles include: The Impact of Menstrual Side Effects on Contraceptive Discontinuation: Findings from a Logitudinal Study in Cairo, Egypt. Most of these articles are excellent sedatives, since they are full of jargon and technical minutiae which are of interest only to the authors ( and perhaps their mothers). However, I came across this article in the March 2005 issue - Does "CNN " work better than " ABC " in Attacking the AIDS Epidemic ? That woke me up all right ! The author has cleverly used these acronyms to coin his own long-forms. "CNN " stands for Condoms, Needles and Negotiation
while " ABC " stands for Abstinence, Being Faithful and Condom Use. You can bet this is an article I will read - and remember !
